About Jug in the Form of a Monkey

Depiction of a monkey sitting on a high rocky pedestal, wearing a tricorn hat, and drinking from a jug. The filling opening is in the hat, the jug in its hand acts as a spout, and the monkey’s tail serves as the handle. The decor is primarily in blue, with the monkey’s body depicted in naturalistic brushstrokes, and the pedestal displaying ornamental patterns. A blue inscription adorns its belly. Additional color accents include the bright yellow jug and the brown hat.
